University of New England (Australia) scientist recognised as one of the world’s “most highly cited”

Dr Karin Meyer of Australia’s University of New England has recently been added to an international list of highly cited researchers.

The Institute for Scientific Information publishes the list to enable research professionals to identify individuals, departments and laboratories that have made fundamental contributions to the advancement of science and technology in recent decades.

Dr Meyer is a Principal Scientist in UNE’s Animal Genetics and Breeding Unit (AGBU) and her inclusion on the list demonstrates the value her colleagues place in her published work. She is one of the fewer than 0.5 per cent of all publishing researchers to make the list.

Dr Meyer is the author of more than 150 journal and conference articles and has designed a number of widely used software packages which estimate genetic parameters that characterise livestock populations. She has worked at AGBU, a joint unit of UNE and the New South Wales Department of Primary Industries, for the past 17 years.

The AGBU was established in 1976 to carry out research, development and training in the genetic improvement of livestock for the benefit of Australian agriculture. It currently has a team of 20 scientists, numerous postgraduate students and support staff and has an active program of visiting scientists.

Among the AGBU’s many achievements are the provision of new methods for the estimation of genetic parameters and the development of genetic evaluation systems which have been widely adopted in industry.

Animal science is one of UNE’s areas of expertise and the institution offers a wide range of courses in the field. To find out more about these or other UNE offerings, contact a counsellor.
